Yup will make that an option. Currently travelling so hopefully next week I will add it in.

Are you sure you are using the same versions on Debian and Rasperry pi?

Hi Doug,

I don't think that focuser is supported. However, if you can get the command set it is using I will add support to it. Currently I am travelling so cant do much but should be back home next week. Thank you for your patience!

Just tested here again with 1 --> 4 then --> 3 and it's fine.

So the driver, depending on the requested exposure time, either requests an exposure time from pre-defined value (Go to Main Control --> Presets) or uses BULB. If it can't find a value in the list, it switches to BULB mode then takes the exposure using a timer. I suspect that your camera has issues switching between these two modes. Try the following to always force BLOB mode. In gphoto_driver.cpp, line 1038, change:

int optimalExposureIndex = find_exposure_setting(gphoto, gphoto->exposure_widget, exptime_usec, true);

To:
int optimalExposureIndex = -1;

Recompile and test again.

Maybe reading the temperature led to this? I don't know, only way is to test the driver after making the necessary changes.

Ok, not sure what the problem is. If you can compile the driver, try this. In gphoto_ccd.cpp, go to line #498, you'll see this:
if (isSimulation()) isTemperatureSupported = false; else isTemperatureSupported = gphoto_supports_temperature(gphotodrv); [/quote] Replace all the above with this: [code] isTemperatureSupported = false; [/quote] Then compile and sudo make install, and see if you see the problem.[code]
if (isSimulation())
isTemperatureSupported = false;
else
isTemperatureSupported = gphoto_supports_temperature(gphotodrv);
[/quote]

Replace all the above with this:
isTemperatureSupported = false; [/quote] Then compile and sudo make install, and see if you see the problem.[code]
isTemperatureSupported = false;
[/quote]

Then compile and sudo make install, and see if you see the problem.

Any chance your camera power saving could be interfering with this? Try to disable power saving or at least increase inactivity timeout in your camera to 5+ minutes or something before it shuts itself.

Just tested here with 600D, works fine in all tests I threw at at. Previewing 1 second, 20 seconds, then live view then preview, then 20secs x 5 capture sequence.. not a single issue.

I can't see the problem in the log, appears to be fine:

I also tried to replicate this on my 600D, which isn't too different from 700D, and it's also working fine.

You need to enable INDI+CCD+Capture logging by clicking on the "Logs" button in EKos Main window.

I just tested my 600D with and without mirror locking and it works just fine. There is something else going on with your camera. If you try gphoto2 from the command line, how do you images look?
